On Saturday night, celebrities, press people, and political folks came together for the annual White House Correspondents' dinner. With guests including Lindsay Lohan, Kim (and Kris!) Kardashian, Rachel Zoe, Charlize Theron, and Martha Stewart, it's no wonder the gowns truly ran the fashion gamut. See all of the looks in our slideshow.
Somehow she reminds you how good she probably looks naked while being completely covered up. The lace gown doesn't do anything special for her figure, but it can be worn again as a mother-of-the-bride dress in twenty years.
As one of the sexiest women alive, Sofia Vergara could wear a sheet and still look stunning — hell, she could wear Arianna Huffington's yellow disaster and make it look good. But this little black cocktail dress is underwhelming and seems a bit casual for an event that you know Barack Obama and Kim Kardashian will be attending.
It was so generous of Emma Stone to lend Kerry her Golden Globes dress. She even added sleeves for her!
Goldie is fabulous, always. Once you've starred in The First Wives Club, you're officially allowed to wear fur shrugs anytime, anywhere.
We can't believe you're wearing that either.
If Ginnifer Goodwin was trying to choose a dress that made her look taller than she is, she achieved her goal. If she was trying to choose a dress that made her look like she was covered in toilet paper, she achieved that goal, too.
This woman is glowing. And, okay, we know black is slimming, but we look more pregnant after spending a night with Ben & Jerry than Reese does here. Kudos, sister.
When did Morticia Addams go red?
Sometimes you just want to go out in that purple sequined gown you bought to wear to your Dreamgirls–themed bachelorette party, even when you're not in Vegas.
Miss Banks's red gown fits her to a T and flatters her immensely. The peplum-like poofs at her sides make her look a bit like spotless ladybug about to take flight ... but in the best way possible.
Sometimes looking like a fancy box of chocolates is not a good thing.
At first glance you might think, Wow, that canary yellow dress is horrible. But then you notice the silk collar and boob-flattening trim, and you realize the dress is really horrible.
Another pregnant actress in black! Paquin didn't shy away from showing a little skin, but she looks beautiful while still giving off a hint of a vampire vibe.
It's always embarassing when you confuse the Country Music Awards with the White House Correspondents' Dinner, so we'll just let this one slide.
When you are a supermodel, you are allowed to tie a bow around your boobs, call it a dress, and look stunning.
Longoria wore the only short dress of the night that was actually appropriate.
Martha got a late invite, so she came straight from the beach. Luckily, she had time to glue some fancy fringe to her cuffs on the car ride over.
Dressing for an event like this can be tricky for a young actress. You can go the Lindsay Lohan route or you can try to keep it classy without looking too mature. Dakota Fanning hits all the right notes, coming off as sophisticated without appearing too old for her age. She even makes a keyhole gown tasteful.
Sometimes we just cannot decide what to wear either, but we've never just called it quits and left the house in our bathrobes.
This structured dress in such a bold color could be too much on many actresses, but Viola Davis pulls it off because she just looks so happy. Her radiant skin and simple hair and makeup are enough to keep the look balanced and fun instead of stuffy.
Sigourney, what are you hiding under there? It looks like the gown was too long and she chose to just tuck the bottom down her front. But hey — it can double as a bib for dinner!
Luckily Claire Danes got the bring your own bib memo, too.
Everyone knows the Kardashians have serious connections, but how in the world did Kris Jenner manage to book Pauly D to do her hair?
Wait, where are her boobs? The dress is ill-fitting, Christmas–colored, and velvet, but it's actuallly kind of White House appropriate. What is going on?
Lauren Bush and David Lauren
Of course she has a FEED clutch.
Where does this spangled shower curtain from Bed, Bath, & Beyond rank on the adorkability scale?
This dress is about as unflattering as they come. On the plus side, she can show off those seriously cool invisible shoes.
Peplums are not for everyone. It's hard to pinpoint what it is that's off about this dress, but something about the color, polka dots, netting, and droopiness just makes it dowdy.
This dress is surprising for Tory Burch because she doesn't usually choose something so structured and ... boring. The one-shoulder spaghetti strap tips it over the edge into bar mitzvah-wear land.
Ohhh, there are Kim Kardashian's boobs!
Is she never going to wear something that fits?
Leslie Mann, you are so pretty and so funny, but why would you wear a dress covered in Lisa Frank florals?
Wait, SPANX MAKES A SPARKLE COLLECTION?
